Not bad.
The first 70 pages were alil rough to get thru. I almost put the book down to finish it up later.
Some of the dialogue was a tad confusing & boring.
But other than that, not bad.
Received this book from a Gr Giveaway.

A great plot, colorful and well fleshed out characters, twists, turns, and unpredictable outcomes make this a fun and enjoyable read!

Let me start off by saying that I was expecting more from this novel. Sure the blurb makes it t sound amazing, but then again the blurb has been known to occasionally be the best part of a book, and unfortunately in this case it was true.

We never get straight answers to anything. Why did he lose his job? What aside from something really silly caused him to think his wife was cheating? Why were the characters acting like kids fresh out of high school instead of the adults they were supposed to b

This was a mixture, sometimes the plot grabbed me and sometimes it didn't. There were lots of twists and turns, though. I liked the cover and the characters. There were elements of romance, action and thriller that kept me reading.
Thanks to the author and publisher for an advance copy via NetGalley.

Henry Lindon is moving into the next phase of his life of teaching law at an university in Dallas. Conflict ensnares his laid-back life and the past is coming for him.

This was suppose to be a thriller filled with suspense. I found it predictable and shallow. Henry careful consideration of everything backed by his critical thinking and slow paced decisions were in fact reactive, whiny, unassertive. A man that could never decide

Heels Over Head by Clay G. Small is a thoroughly delightful, delicious read!

Small’s protagonist—hapless Henry Lindon—captures the reader’s affection from page one with the infectious funk surrounding him. Trouble and adventure seem to stalk Lindon, despite all his best intentions. The underlying humor of the plot is taut, subtle, yet well-nourished throughout the tale.

Mr. Small does a masterful job of weaving a palette of colorful characters into an intriguing narrative, replete with twists and

The story centers around Henry who is moving to the next phase of his life (in what appears to be begrudgingly) of teaching law at Southerland University. Our other main characters are his brother Marvin, his wife Marylou and a co-ed named Nichole, with some minor characters being tossed in.

The theme throughout the book: Is Henry simply being paranoid or is someone from high school out to get him?

I understood this book to be a mystery/suspense theme. However, I found the book fairly predictable

Others have called this a thriller, but I didn't really think it was that suspenseful. I got it for free from Early Reviewers and I enjoyed the book, but it wasn't gripping. It was fairly predictable much of the time, though some of the things I expected to be intertwined were never tied together in the book.

It was a VERY fast read, but I only had it in paperback format, so I left it at home and didn't have time to read at home much immediately after starting it. I think that it would have been

I had a hard time with the descriptions in this novel. Once I started skimming and picking up on the most relevant facts, the novel read a lot better for me. I think if the prose was tightened up, this would be a really enjoyable book, even with the far fetched shenanigans. Thanks to NetGalley for providing the ARC in exchange for my honest opinion.

Not sure why it took me so long to read this one - good entertaining read. Henry did repeat himself too often - cmon authors, no need to hit us over the head with the constant repetition of what a character is thinking - we get it, he's not sure, he thinks his wife is cheating, he is always in his brother's shadow. Despite that, I liked it. ...more

Thank you to author Clay G. Small and publisher Greenleaf Book Group for this ARC of Heels Over Head. Also, thanks to Goodreads for hosting this opportunity through the First Reads program.

I really liked this one. An easy to read, great story with some entertaining characters. A mix of mystery, action, comedy, thriller and romance, with some nice plot twists and turns. Everything was kept light, including the one murder - no detailed graphic depictions of the victim.

The cover is nicely done, dis

Brilliantly written this book is built on the experiences of Mr. Smalls long career in law and takes advantage of his many travel experiences. The story takes place in Dallas and locals will recognize many of the sites and events. It is suspenseful and funny, imaginative and full of surprises. The kind of book you won't put down until you are through. A real treat! ...more

This book had a decent premise but it lost me in the lack of excitement. The characters were a little too comical and the plot was weak. It just read like a bad Lifetime movie.

This novel is a very engaging, fast-paced corporate/revenge thriller. The characters for the most part are finely drawn, although the villains tend toward the caricatured. There isn't a lot of action that you might see in other novels of these types, and there's a lot more dialogue; however, the novel keeps your interest.

We start out with a protagonist, Henry Lindon, who has lost a high-power corporate job. He is now teaching at university, but conflicts arise. The novel's exposition sets up a l

This book serves an excellent example for the importance of good communication. Most of the conflict in this book could have been avoided had the characters simply spoken honestly to one another. Everyone had a piece of the puzzle, but no one was willing to speak up. Heels Over Head is a quick read novel, a corporate/revenge thriller.

Henry Lindon, once a high-powered executive is now reduced to teaching at a university. He finds he is at a crossroads in his life; he believes his wife is having a

This was an okay book, there were several pieces that I felt jumped the shark or were just out of character. Henry was a bit whiny for my taste and then all of a sudden grew a backbone. There just seemed to be too many "coincidences" for someone to start putting things together. An unnecessary death, I think the author didn't know what to do with this character so it was easier to kill her off then to find a way to fit her into the final plan.

Overall it was an entertaining easy to read, fluff m
